This is a place for books and other awesome things.
I needed a break from the short fiction that I've been reading this month so I picked up Me and Earl and the Dying Girl by Jesse Andrews.
I read it in what was essentially a single sitting. This book has some great entertainment value. It's a very voicey read, which is at the same time engaging and irritating; however, I think that we are supposed to feel irritated with the main character from time to time.
Though the high expectations that I had going into this book were not completely met, I did really enjoy the read. It diligently works to deal truthfully with cancer and death in youth, which is admirable; however, it is not simply a book about illness.
I don't really have much to say about it other than I liked it, but it didn't blow me away.
